A lovely dirty weekend with Indigoblu on tour!

Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are well and happy and have been enjoying the sunshine today. Its been beautiful here today - I took my eldest and my mum up to Brockhole in the lakes where we had a lovely day!

Back to my fabulous weekend with Kay and Alfie of Indigoblu and Lou Withers ...and 24 other ladies!!! Our first project was this painting....this is the finished piece....

As you can probably imagine it took quite a lot of getting to here...we all used an indigoblu stencil to do our portraits but all ended up with quite different results. Here are a few of the steps!!!

a very scary start ....I didn't really believe we were going to get anywhere at this point...

The belief was begining to set in at this point ....

Here I was feeling more confident ...

and yes by now I just wanted to get the hair on!!!!!

I did lots of colours ....

then added some white ...and finally added the splats once I got home!

If you have the opportunity and are not an artist please try this course - it really worked - at least I thought it did!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
